Coop Sweden Launches First Unmanned Store

Coop Sweden has opened its first 'unmanned' store, located at Sätrahöjden in Gävle.

The retailer tested the idea last summer, as part of its initiative to seek out more innovative retail solutions.

Coop Mitt is the first partner in the brand to open the unmanned store module, Coop Mini. The group plans to open two unmanned pilot stores in the Gävle area during the year.

Meta Persdotter, CEO of Coop Mitt, said she felt "very proud" of the new store, and hopes that "this pilot project will be appreciated and used by our customers".

Product Range

The pilot store at Sätrahöjden in Gävle offers about 400 different dry, frozen, and chilled SKUs. Click and collect services are also available.

The store has no traditional cash registers; rather, customers pay via the group's new payment solution Scan & Pay. Customers can scan their goods, pay for them and even unlock and enter the store with the new app.

The store modules can easily be relocated to different locations and can be placed in districts without a store, in sparsely populated areas, and in tourist areas, offering round-the-clock access.
